I was finally able to get a copy of Rosetta Stone Hindi and couldn't wait to get started. Thankfully, I did not have to pay the $229.00 price tag because I would be rather annoyed if I did! So far it's just OK. The pictures and layout are outdated, everything is in Devanagari Script, and it gets boring quite fast. MIM is impressed with my knowledge and correct answers so far, but that's just 'cause once I recognize a word such as larki, I know the right answer will contain a picture of a girl. It's basically the act of elimination more than anything. And without MIM next to me to explain some things, I think I would be quite lost right off the bat. Why is level one in complete Devanagari Script - without any tools to teach you how to read the script? Why does the program look and work like it was released in the 80's and never updated? I have only heard how Rosetta Stone is the best language tool. So far I don't believe it. Have any of you had experience with it? What did you think? Maybe I should just give it more time!
Update: As a reader suggested, I have now moved on to LiveMocha.com and LOVE it! I highly recommend it over Rosetta.
